We thank it for that and ask no more of it, but to be allowed to serve it.G. M. TrevelyanThe Trevelyans are unique in British social and political history: a family that for several generations dedicated themselves tothe service and chronicling of their country, from the radical, reforming civil servant Charles Edward Trevelyan to the historian G. M. Trevelyan. Often eccentric, priggish, high-minded and utterly self-regarding, they have nonetheless left their mark on our past.

This engaging history dispassionately explores the lives and achievements of this unique family and the part they played in shaping the history of Great Britain.
